Custody fee on ISA accounts

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, I'm new to the community so sorry if i'm missing something obvious here.

Is the custody fee still charged if I make trades only on my stocks and shares ISA? I currently hold a share dealing account, with no cash or open positions, and a stocks and shares ISA, with 4 trades this month.

So, will I be charged the £24 quarterly custody fee in this circumstance? And also, will the commission rates be lower next month, as I have made the required 3+ trades this month?

Thanks in advance.

I found the custody fees confusing too! Does the custody fee apply to both the share dealing and ISA account separately (e.g. if I didn't trade in either, would I end up paying £48)?

I don't think you'll get charged on your share dealing account as you have no open positions - but I am new to this too.

It says in their fees section.

Deal three or more times on your share dealing account during the quarter

No mention of ISA in above criteria, It looks a custody fee is chargeable then. 

Don't know for sure, I also am looking to get the exact answer.

I queried this via IG support chat before opening my ISA. I was advised the custody fee would only be applied once for both Share Dealing and ISA and only then if a minimum of 3 trades were not made in the previous quarter (in either account or in a combination of the two). A dealing account with zero holdings would not incur a custody charge anyway, as it's a fee for holding custody of shares, rather than an account management or inactivity fee.

In a similar way, 3 trades made in my dealing account in March entitled me to the £3 UK commission rate and free US dealing in my ISA account from the moment I opened it on 6 April.

Hope that helps.

    • Integrate v.11 of PRT with IG. Why are IG still using PRT v.10.3, when v11. which contains many significant improvements, was released over a year ago?
    • 1 last post - couldn't help myself!!! Simple 1 x 1 Gann Angles projected from the high/low price points - I'll admit that this is ultra advanced trading stuff here, the message here is two-fold The markets regardless of what you think or have been told are NOT random, they HAVE no choice but to work out a pre-set course according to their growth or decay Gann Angles are far far better at identifying support/resistance levels - BECAUSE the market or specifically price action is NOT 2D, we can clearly see price conforms to a grid system movement - that ain't 2Dimensional! You could blindly trade those gann angles if you have the right level of expertise and knowledge of them - look at the blue circles - price rallied then fell back to them and bounced pretty accurately, they won't all work and the highest swing high is under threat at which you can't project further levels from Again here's the secret of success - you could of skewed the R value into your favour by having a 20/25pt stop underneath, trailed a stop and made fantastic R value returns Gann said over 100 years ago "Markets are financial points of force and that EVERY low/high is connected to another low/high point of force in the FUTURE, as well as in the past" As you can clearly SEE - he was absolutely right - very few people look at the markets right, when you do you see things completely differently to most other traders/investors There's some real science behind markets moves - I might do a post in future months as understanding what is actually going on helps you see through the fog and makes things a bit clearer  I'll admit I've studied Gann for years and it is not easy, it is very hard to grasp - he hides hidden messages in his course that can throw you off for months and when you to apply his methods some just do not work
